In the United States, more so than anywhere else in the world, cars play an integral part in every one's lives. I'm not just talking about the use of cars as tools to get us from one place to another; I'm talking about the cultural influence they have in each of our lives. Just look at the number of car magazines, car clubs, car related businesses and even car blogs that populate our landscape. Whether you're a car guy* or not, cars have had a real impact on how you grew up and who you are today.
As a result, we would like to know what your favorite car of all time is. It could be the first car you owned, it could be a car that you have always lusted after but may never own. It could be the car you went on your first date with your spouse on or it could be a car your parents owned when you were a kid. Whatever it is, we want to know.
I'll start, and I'm going to cheat a bit but hey, it's my blog. I'm picking two; a modern favorite and a Classic. My modern favorite is a Lamborghini Countach. An image of this iconic car was posted on every adolescent boy's wall in the late '70's and early '80's. I have not owned one (yet), but I obviously haven't grown up either. My Classic choice is a Pierce Silver Arrow. The beautiful, sleek design was amazing but came too late to save this great company from the ravages of the Great Depression.
OK, it's that simple. Now it's your turn. Whether it's a Pinto or a Porsche, tell us about your favorite car.
